BJ Baldwin, Guerlain Chicherit, and Robby Gordon team up with Toyo Tires to challenge the grueling 2014 Dakar rally which runs Jan 4-18th, 2014.   The 2014 edition of the rally once again takes place in South America and runs through Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile.  Baldwin has appeared at Dakar before, but he is better known for winning back-to-back SCORE Baja 1000s and overall SCORE international Championships.

BJ is joined by Guerlain Chicherit of France in a pair of custom-built Chevrolet pickup truck off-road racers.  Chicherit is an experienced Dakar racer with three stage wins to his credit.  These truck buggies look lean and mean.  All three of these machines look ready to battle the element and competitors at the 2014 Dakar.

Best of luck to BJ Baldwin, Guerlain Chicherit, and Robby Gordon in this long distance off-road endurance race!  The epic 2014 Dakar Rally is over 5,824 miles in length, with over 3,500 miles of timed stages, and takes two weeks to complete!
